Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute
Cognitive and motor impairments are common after a variety of brain diseases and insults and are a source of persistent disability in many individuals. Such disabilities result in loss of independence, substantial economic costs, and emotional burden to those affected and their caregivers.
Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute is devoted to improving the lives of individuals with neurological disabilities through research. Institute scientists conduct grant-sponsored research on theoretical models of language, action, and motor impairments; advanced neurophysiological techniques of structure-function brain mapping; and naturalistic functional assessment. MRRI supports translation of research advances into rigorous clinical assessment tools, and a range of effective treatments including pharmacologic and experience-based treatments and assistive technology.
